This information is used to determine if the insurance coverage is adequate and affordable. Adequate means the insurance will cover prescribed antiretroviral (ARV) drug therapy. Affordable is determined by adding the yearly premium primary insurer and calculating if this amount is less than 9.5% of the applicant’s annual MAGI.
